This is another M/M book that I really enjoyed! I mean LOOK at that cover! Sweet and Sexy. It was more of a philosophical journey, that makes you love the romanticized thoughts of Ryan. He tends to think (and sometimes talk to himself) inside his head while going about his everyday life and literally stops to ask himself “what the hell am I thinking?!?“
When Ryan was a small boy, about six years old, he knew that he wasn’t like other boys. He loved his preschool teacher. He wanted to marry him. When he was a little older, he played doctor… with boys. He did not grow out of this. He loved and lusted for males, from boys to men. After a traumatic upbringing in Utah, with an abusive fundamentalist, homo-phobic family, he escaped to Tinsel Town. There he pursued his passions, perfecting his signature coffee creation, planning for a coffee shop of his own, and refining his hit-it-and-run one-night sexcapades. Afraid of love, he was a serial one-night stand man and kept his inner romantic locked in the closet. Until the morning our sexy, handsome Yeats aficionado wakes up to discover that he had fallen into bed, and possibly in love, with a young, wealthy soulful man who is entirely unlike anyone our baristo has ever met. Terrified, he’s off to work where he witnesses a heterosexual romantic farce that opens him to the possibility of lasting love, for the first time ever. Will he stay true to form and turn tail and run? Or will he open his heart and face his new love like a man? Meet Ryan in WeHo for a caffè latte and see for yourself.
This book was light-hearted and a real joy to read! I loved that this broken man was reciting poetry in his head. Relating his real life experiences to the things he had read. I enjoyed getting inside of Ryan’s head and seeing how he thinks. He tries to work through his past issues to see if he can have a chance at love, although the entire thing essentially takes place in such a short time span.
The naming of the chapters alone are so much fun!!
- Kiss My Ass
- Ho-Hum De-Dum-Dum
- An Elixir
- Conflicted and Bitchy
- Not Such a Dumb Bitch
- Men Fuck with You
- Non-Committal Boyfriend
- None of it Meant Anything
- Gayly Ever After
The answer for me is that I definitely recommend this book for those times when you need to be uplifted.
